Two years ago, Greg Harms and Clark Fyans of Third Edge Heli asked us if we’d ever consider re-releasing the Comi. It was the only ski, they said, that could handle the full variety of steep and deep conditions they encounter in Chile, Alaska, and Revelstoke. Clients without powder skis in the quiver could get on a pair and ski all day, while guides loved the predictable, stable nature of the front rocker/swallowtail design.
We’ve heard similar stories elsewhere. How could we say no?
Since we can’t leave well enough alone, we rebuilt the old design from the ground up, using a modified version of our new Low Fat Layup, and introducing a whole lot of carbon to maintain torsional stiffness across the Comi’s girthy dimensions. The new version is lighter and snappier than its predecessor, and features the snow-shedding textured topsheet found on our powder and touring models. If you yearn for the days of super-duper-fatties and you believe that “bigger is better,” take a trip with the Comi while you have the chance.
